We stayed 2 nights in room 4. The room was comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean. There is a sensibly priced mini bar in the room. The initial ambiance is more like a small hotel than a classic b&b. We were checked in efficiently by the very pleasant receptionist and provided with a push button key which operated the gate to...

Lovely bed and breakfast, great location easy to walk to the pier and the Tug restaurant. Great outside space allocated to each room and very spacious room. Secure onsite car parking. I lik the fact that they supplied you with a local mobile phone with preprogrammed telephone numbers in case you had to contact them out of hours. Excellent breakfast... More

We recently stayed at Cornerstones for 1 night and I'm now kicking myself as it should have been for 2! The hosts were delightful, even making breakfast bags for us as we had an early start. One thing I would recommend is booking restaurants in advance, ahead of your stay as the Tugboat didn't have any space for 4 days!... More

The host Peter and his staff were super helpful and friendly and to top it off the Guesthouse is in walking distance of town and the waterfront. I would highly recommend the... More

My wife and I were blessed with the opportunity to travel throughout Namibia on an exquisite and breathtaking private safari. Stopping at Cornerstone Guesthouse on the seventh day of our trip we enjoyed friendly and helpful service from all of the staff. The lodging is relatively modern and mid-range, but very clean and has all the basic amenities. Moreover, the... More

Cornerstone Guesthouse was our recharge stop in our 17N itinerary around Namibia, and I'm glad we booked 3 nights at this wonderful place. The location at the Guesthouse was perfect - within walking distance from the jetty, which boasts two excellent restaurants, as well as the city centre, where the museum and some other restaurants are. The rooms were immaculate... More

A great place to stay in Swakopmund. Easy to find, gated parking, comfortable, well equipped and appointed rooms facing into the lovely garden, great breakfast, easy walking into town AND extremely friendly, helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble and help and advice were given with big smiles.

A perfectly nice place to stay when visiting Swakopmund. Quiet area, though central, within few minutes walk from town centre. Friendly and helpful owners trying to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Rooms are clean and tidy, all heading towards their green and lovely garden. Parking in the fenced backyard making it safe leaving no worries about the car.

Very pleasant little gated residence close to centre of Swakopmund. Room was delightful and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Staff were happy to book restaurants and provide a small map to show you where attractions and restaurants are located. Lovely breakfasts. Would highly recommend.
